I've always had a major problem with drinking, since I was a teenager. I've been through so many hardships the past few years I found myself drinking heavily everyday for almost two years. I used to say the same thing...not going to drink...I'm on call...but I always did. I said "did" because it's been almost a month since my fiancé and I had a drink. We are both alcoholics enabling each other. He had lost total hope in his life bc of everything he is going through so we said enough is enough after trying many times. I think it's working this time. He has been on medication and with him staying strong I am too. He started a new job he is doing good at and I am getting good grades going to school online. The kids love we aren't drinking. It may take many times to become successful like someone trying to lose weight or smoke and believe me, I won't dare think I am successful if I can go at least two years then maybe. We don't know why we do what we do but it doesn't make you or my fiancé nor I bad people. It's an addiction, an outlet, it numbs our problems and hurts to face them. Hang in there keep trying. Honestly, I KNOW you are on the right track if you actually told your doctor the TRUTH.

Hello friend. Maybe you might have it a little backwards. The first step is simply admitting you are powerless over alcohol and when you drink your life is unmanageable. Just chew on that for a few days and get conversation going at a meeting about the first step. You're gonna be just fine. Stay close, and thank you for your rigorous honesty.
